WATCH: Queen's Park reacts to Ford documents

Province maintains it's not stepping in

It doesn't look like this latest release of police documents surrounding Mayor Rob Ford is getting Queen's Park to move in.

She says it's been a challenging year and through it all, Municipal Affairs Minister Linda Jeffrey has underlined the province can't step in and remove the mayor if he hasn't been convicted of anything.

But with phrases like "drug trafficking" popping up in this new set of documents, Jeffrey would only say those are "troubling allegations."

Jeffrey stresses Ford is just one person and it seems as though council is getting things done for residents.

She says the province touches base with the deputy mayor on a regular basis and won't comment on the specifics of any new police documents that have been released.

    Liberal crooks and incompetent morons; they're the last ones that should be allowed to comment on Ford. Too bad the media isn't on them the way they are with Ford otherwise we might get some action in removing these idiots that are destroying our province

      @Frankie That's probably why they are so careful in their comments.
      I'm just surprised that the media didn't go to Ottawa to get comments from politicians there about Rob Ford- since they are doing everything necessary to blow this out of proportion.

      I didn't see the point as to why the media are peppering people at Queen's Park about this.
